Sitter needed for Boxers, chickens & house
Our two boxer girls are the light of our lives, so we’re looking for someone to care for them like we do. We’ll be away Aug/Sept 2019, so it will be for about five weeks. My partner and I are both retired and are enjoying the tree change that we made just recently on our move to Barnawartha.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a small property just outside the small township of Barnawartha (about 15 minutes drive from Wodonga, Victoria). There is plenty of room for the dogs to run, for the chickens to range freely and the three lambs to eat the grass. We are surrounded by beautiful Victorian highlights including Chiltern, Beechworth, Yarrawonga and a little further afield for Bright and Mt Beauty.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dogs are the main focus for the sitter. They are used to being part of the family and although they enjoy the outdoors, they expect to be up on the couch with the family in the evening. They also sleep in their beds in my bedroom, so are somewhat spoilt. They expect and get lots of love and cuddles, and an occasional outing in the car.
The chickens will also need to have their water and feed replenished regularly and have their eggs collected daily. Lambs can look after themselves as long as they have water....
It would also be appreciated for the lawns to be mowed with the ride on mower. + More info
